After Woman Charged With Threats to NYC NGO Gets Time Served Restitution Ridiculed

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 2 – Back on March 12, 2019 the US Department of Justice announced that "Kim Anh Vo, a.k.a. “F@ng,” a.k.a. “SyxxZMC,” a.k.a. “Zozo,” a.k.a. “Miss.Bones,” a.k.a. “Sage Pi,” a.k.a. “Kitty Lee,” was arrested this morning in Hephzibah, Georgia.  Vo was charged by a criminal Complaint with conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham."

  The complaint cited "a photograph of Victim-l's chief executive officer and a former U.S . Ambassador ("Victim-1 ,CEO"), along with the words: "[Victim-1 CEO] we will  take [the Victim-1 Twitter Account] down Inshallah."

  Victim-1 was a NYC based NGO which, after Vo plead guilty, wanted $176,000 in restitution for cyber defense moves it said she had made them take.   

When U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Noami Reice Buchwald sentenced Vo on February 23, 2023 -- to time served, she was told by the AUSA that "the non-profit organization impacted by the conspiracy is seeking approximately $176,000 in restitution."  

Judge Buchwald said, "Well, that's fine as far as it goes, but that's not supported by anything. So I hardly know if the number is right in and of itself, and whether it is also appropriate essentially to ask Ms. Vo to bear the entire cost of whatever defensive measures this organization took is sort of a separate question, I think, probably worth some can't  answer that in an anodyne way? OK. Just skip it."

The case is US v. Vo, 19-cr-223 (Buchwald)
